Infertility: GP management with Dr Penny Wilson
May 19, 2013
Infertility (or sub fertility – to be PC) is a common problem for which women (and men / couples) presen tto GPs. It can be a really tricky area trying to work out the how, why and what. I think we tend to do a lot of tests where often a careful history and rational approach to the patient and their partner can be really useful.

Of course the purge thing I forgot to mention is that stress an anxiety is a sure fire way to knock off the fertility too. How often do you see couples getting super stressed out about not being able to fall pregnant only to take a break from trying and… Voila! Telling a trying to conceive couple to “relaaaaax” is easier said than done but is also an important part of the counselling process.
